Cloud hosting provider NephoScale announced on Monday that it has released its CloudPaaS for developers.
Based on Cloud Foundry Version 2, CloudPaaS is designed to make it easy for developers to test, deploy and scale applications in a production environment with no infrastructure to manage.
With the platform, developers can easily move an app from their own server to the cloud without making any changes to the code.
“With the addition of our new NephoScale CloudPaaS platform-as-a-service offering, we are able to provide customers an easy way to get started developing, testing, and deploying their apps,” Telemachus Luu, CTO of NephoScale said in a statement. “This new service allows us to accommodate strong customer demand for a low friction way to quickly deploy apps in the cloud, while also providing a seamless path to our NephOS IaaS cloud platform when customers need maximum visibility into the underlying infrastructure or want access to high performance on-demand bare metal servers.”
CloudPaaS supports Ruby, Python, PHP and Java/Spring while offering a choice of application services including MySQL.
“Hosting providers are increasingly adopting Platform as a Service in response to developer demand. Cloud Foundry dramatically lowers the barrier for ecosystem participation in the PaaS market to meet the growing demand from developers,” James Watters, Head of Cloud Foundry Product, Marketing and Ecosystem at Pivotal said in a statement. “NephoScale’s decision to leverage Cloud Foundry supports our vision to deliver a platform that significantly reduces development cycles and accelerates time to market for developers and cloud operators alike. Enterprises seeking to leverage Cloud Foundry can now consider NephoScale for both public and private deployments.”
“In the development of CloudPaaS, NephoScale chose to partner with Altoros, a leading Cloud Foundry systems integrator and consulting firm,” Bruce Templeton, CEO of NephoScale said. “Looking beyond this Beta release, developers will appreciate the flexibility and ease-of-use of our public on-demand version of CloudPaaS and enterprises will find enormous value in our private version. NephoScale’s CloudPaaS will be one of the industry’s first fully managed, 24/7 supported, SLA-backed private PaaS offerings based on Cloud Foundry 2.0.”
